I'm running Project Runeberg (runeberg.org) with Scandinavian e-texts since 1992 and digital facsimiles since 1998 with just a handful of unpaid core volunteers, so 20 people is a huge organization to me. You are free to reuse our contents, which is in the public domain. We don't claim or reserve any rights to the digitization. (However, we don't want the name "Project Runeberg" to be reused by others.) At the very bottom of the title page for each of our books there is a "download" link that helps you retrieve a ZIP archive of 600dpi TIFF G4 images. Today this ZIP archive doesn't contain any OCR text or metadata, but we should improve this in the future.
Places that I hang around include the Web4lib, Bookpeople, and Diglib mailing lists, and the D-Lib Magazine website.
